We’ve all seen those gorgeous models and movie stars – and what is one thing a lot of them have in common? Prominent cheek bones! Having cheek augmentation can drastically change the look of your face. Read on for some more information about this procedure!
What is cheek augmentation?
Maybe your cheeks have lost volume and are saggy, or maybe you’ve just always wanted movie-star caliber cheekbones. Whatever your reasons for wanting more contoured and defined cheeks, there is help available. There are different ways to change your cheeks; your doctor can discuss all of your options with you and will be able to advise you which procedure you should have to get the results you want.
• Cheek implants are made of silicon, a permanent and safe option for reshaping the cheeks. Implants can last for a lifetime.
• Fat transfer is another option; in this procedure, fat is simply taken from another part of the body and injected into the cheeks. This is a more natural option than a silicon cheek implant, and because it can be injected a little bit at a time it offers the doctor a way to easily shape and place the fat. Because the fat comes from the patient, there is no risk of rejection by the body or a bad reaction. Eventually, the fat will be absorbed into the body, typically in about 3 to 4 years.
• Injectable fillers, such as Juvéderm Voluma, are another way to change the look of your cheeks – you will see results immediately. Another benefit of fillers is that if you aren’t happy with the results, they are easily reversible. A downside of fillers is that they are only a short-term solution, and additional injections are needed about every 2 years.
